Not long before his passing this month, electronic dance music producer Tim Bergling—better known by his stage name Avicii—foresaw that he was “going to die” young due to health complications.
The DJ retired from performing live in 2016 as he was diagnosed with alcohol-related acute pancreatitis.
In a documentary titled Avicii: True Stories, produced by filmmaker and friend Levan Tsikurishvili, Bergling uncannily declared, “I have said, like, I’m going to die. I have said it so many times. And so I don’t want to hear that I should entertain the thought of doing another gig.”
He also lamented at the lack of support he received after announcing that he was not going to hold more concerts.
“When I decided to stop, I expected something completely different. I expected support… considering everything I have been through. I have been very open with everyone I work with and everyone who knows me… [they know] that I’ve had anxiety and that I have tried. I did not expect that people would try to pressure me into doing more gigs.”
The feature was briefly streamed on Netflix in October 2017, and unveiled the “untold story” of the star, who claimed to have disliked being the center of attention.
More information on the documentary can be found on its official website.
